NJF Holdings is an international investment firm with private equity, venture capital, and real estate arms. Nicole advocates for digital innovation and the application of disruptive technologies to successfully launch both established and new businesses into the future.

Through the group’s venture capital arm, NJF Capital, Nicole oversees an investment portfolio across Europe and the US and has strategically invested in numerous start-ups in healthcare, FinTech, FoodTech, and Deep Tech. NJF Capital were early investors in Revolut, the leading digital banking alternative. Other notable exits include Songza, Dollar Shave Club, and RelateIQ, which were acquired by Google, Unilever, and Salesforce respectively.

An early-stage investor in healthcare and biotechnology, Nicole’s vision for NJF Capital was to actively participate in addressing some of the world’s major challenges by investing in ground-breaking medical technology.
